Holá José! :D

I/we fully understand this - and we all appreciate all the time and efforts you've been dedicating to this so far!! ;)
Well done!! :D

I'll see what I can come up with regarding creation of new icons...
I have a program I use when making PP Presentations here at the office and I believe it'll be useful here as well... ;)

I'll come back during the weekend with these...

Cheers

I can find some great dock icons like in deviant.art, but forum icon... no good ones. Anyhow, I wonder if there some useful ones somewhere else than phpBB own boards, as they styles database seems to be unfinished.

Holá José - and All,

I've been playing a little with these icons, but it's really difficult, as long as I don't have any information regarding the size and type (jpg, png, gif etc...) the graphic files need to be in... :roll:

But - the icons attached is made with an online - and free - Glassy Buttons generator... :D
You can even add text behind for the "sticky" and "announcement" icons, if need be... ;)

Hope you can use this..!?

Cheers
Kim Frederik

Hi Frederik

the color selection reflects you color preference and that you realy dont like green :lol:
But to have some "sign convention" , I think that green should mean new post and orange now new post and red locked threat ( like we have in traffic lamps :wink: .... it is a more intuitive way of recognizing signs )

Actually that's not correct... ;)
If you think of it, most of the threads are just there, but no new postings... ;)
The green color is the only one I want to keep as it is today... ;)

Basically that are the icons that we can improve, so we can change the name or extension of the name, but the best is not make that because we can search all places when the file is called and change it.

so is better use the same name extension and remember

"folder.gif" no is the same that "folder.GIF"

I can see that we are - once again - trying to improve the forum icons...
This is absolutely fine by me and I'm aware that Bob is spending a lot of time to make it right - and look good at the same time... ;)
However, I don't really fancy the new icons... Maybe they just need to be scaled down a little, but also the color should IMO be closer to the green color we're using on the site in general and not that really bright grass green color...

But since we have had this topic before, I'm bumping this thread up... :D
Ideas are always appreciated...!!! ;)
Cheers

Blue is for Who is online... just to make diferent and discret and gray locked.
